Milestones

Parker rolled over by himself for the first time this week. It surprised both him and me. Colby was a late bloomer as far as rolling and moving. The Occupational Therapist seems to think the pacemaker was bothering his belly, and so he wouldn't be willing to move or push his body up. But now he's getting pretty good at it!




Also we decided to feed him solids, in an attempt to


1- get him to sleep longer and


2- help with his reflux.

He started out wide-eyed, curious as to why we put him in there and were all staring at him.

first taste...

"Whoa... what was that???"

Photobucket



Yeah, I think he liked it...

A lot!




And his other recent milestone, we actually got a laugh out of him! This one is still pretty rare though!

Getting ready for his cardio appointment

Here's a few pics I snapped after his bath. I wanted him to smell good for the cardiologist. He's such a cute little guy!

We All Fall Down

Parker's become so smiley lately, but the more he smiles, the more he wiggles. Here's a good example.

At least he's still happy!

Parker's Appointment with the Cardiologist

Parker during his EKG. Look, he has more wires than fingers!

Then we had to check his pacemaker. We got the machine all hooked up, and the computer couldn't find a working pacemaker. No matter how we tried, it couldn't read it. I started to get freaked out, but apparently its a different brand than most pacemakers. We had to go with the less common brand because it is the smallest. And our peanut? Yeah, he's small.


The problem with these appointments and a 4 mo old? He kept grabbing the wires...





and eating them. Nom Nom Nom. So Nummy.

4 Months old!



Today Parker turned 4 months old! We're so excited, and yet so shocked. Pregnancy dragged on forever and forever, and now his babyhood is just slipping through our fingers. So here's four things about our little buddy-boy.


1- Did I mention the teeny? 11 lb 4 oz today. Although he's starting to fill out, he still doesn't look like a 4 mo old. He's holding strong in the 1% for weight and height.


2- He's so happy! Although he's very high maintenance still, he will smile at ANYONE. You just coo "hi!" and he'll flash an adorable gummy smile at you.


3- He's a total mama's boy. Which I love. Colbs was always obsessed with Dad, so its my turn :)


4. His eyelashes are longer than the hair on his head. Poor guy!

Brothers, much?

Sometimes my boys look almost identical to me. Not many others can see it though. Well, one afternoon Colby insisted that Parker sat next to him while they watched TV. And I'm a sucker for a photo opportunity, so I started snapping pics. Gosh they are so much alike!

Slowly But Surely


Sorry for the blurry picture! This kid never stops moving. But good news! He's getting a little meat on his bones! His "battery pack generator" (as we call it) is getting less and less noticable. His cheeks are chubbier, his fingers are starting to get squishier, and he's even getting a few rolls on those thighs. Here's a picture from two months ago: What little chicken legs!

Just for a little comparison, here's his big brother's legs at 6 weeks, about the same age as Parker in the white onesie:
